For 4 years I waged battle against nature with plastic, glass and bricks, to squeeze food from a small, shady and windy ocean-side yard. Now that I have an allotment garden plot, I am back to producing! I am also working to start up a seed saving-trade group at my community garden.

I am a plant & insect biologist by training, and although I have tendencies for curious experimentation and meticulous record-keeping...I still love the magic of growing plants and have been known to carry a pocket full of beans for those that ask for change.

I mostly grow peas, beans, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, brassicas, greens, and herbs. Always interested in seed trading, cool-loving varieties, delicious heirlooms, organic growing, and tips from those that are sun-challenged or wind-whipped.

I live in: Canada

My zone is: 6b/7a (Victoria, BC)

My favorite forum 1 is Growing Tomatoes.

My favorite forum 2 is Beans, Peas & Other Legumes.
